in america's infrastructure. we have a big battle at home about the budget and the republicans are hammering the president because he is not invading the entire middle east, not doing it the way they would want to do it. president obama has decided on a more focused, realistic approach. he's trying to give the rebels, those who want democracy, a fighting chance at just that and trying to stop gadhafi. this is the human thing to do -- from slaughtering his own people. now, aside from all the reasons for this mission, he will never convince me that gadhafi didn't have a hand in the lockerbie bombing. you'll never convince me that gadhafi hasn't supplied resources to terrorists. given the fact americans died on that 747 over lockerbie, i'm all for this mission. i think the president of the united states, barack obama, deserves the benefit of the doubt and our support. the key here is no ground troops. a limited role in scope. working with international partners who also want to do this and are flying their jets in there. and staying within the confines of the u.n. resolution. there's a lot of r

on "the washington post," a study on sex in america, study finds abstinence on rise in teens, early 20s. i've been saying for some time and some time looking at my kids and their friends over the past few years -- >> right. >> i've noticed a, in the age of pornography where a kid who is 9 or 10 is exposed to stuff we weren't exposed to until we were in college or even later, a more conservative generation regarding sex. and here it says the number of teens and people in the early 20s who remain abstinent goes well into the early -- it goes close to a third, mike barnicle. this is a dramatic shift. our youth are becoming more conservative when it comes to abstinence and sex. i think it's a reaction to all those images they're bombarded with at an early age. >> i think part of it, i think you put your finger on part of it, is the unbelievable access that kids have, everyone has, to stuff on the internet from the age of 8, 9, 10 years of age. i am the wrong guy to talk to about this, joe. i was raised with a deep belief and taught that sex is more dangerous than the third rail. >> right. >> j

cutting short his tour of latin america amid criticism of his leadership on libya and now heading back to washington two hours earlier than planned and holding a conference call with his national security team before departing. speaking in el salvador yesterday, obama pushed back against criticism of the high cost of war which some analystings predict could cost the western coalition more than $1 billion if the operation drags on for more than a couple of months. >> we will continue to provide details to the american people about the costs of this operation. but because it is limited in time, scope, with a well-defined mission, we are confident that this is something we can budget as part of our overall operations. events happen around the world in which the united states with our unique capabilities has to respond. as the leader in the world community. in benghazi, city of 700,000 people, you had the prospect of gadhafi's forces carrying out his orders to show no mercy. for us to be able to structure something where we bring our unique capabilities to bear, to fulfill a mission that i

seem to realize that there will be no quick or meaningful intervention from america or the international community. and they are attacking opposition cities with impunity. the question tonight -- is it too late to stop gadhafi's violent attack on his own people? first, our regulars, e.d. hill and will cain. >> it was amazing to see the wisconsin state capitol on lockdown last night like a prison. police clearing angry protesters from the building. something seems to be completely lost -- i think it's important to know that collective bargaining is not a right, it's a privilege. >> and i've been looking at congressman king's hearings on the extent of radicalization in the american community. and i looked at statistics on the department of justice web site and saw this over 400 convictions for terrorist acts prosecuted since september 11. the vast majority related in some way to islamic terrorism. and i think we've got to talk about this. >> all right. amazing amount of stuff going on. a lot to talk about. first to the latest on libya. i want you to hear what one of ou

for the country, really, is, is this a real debate about balancing america's budget, or is this actually a debate just about cutting spending which is the political hot button and what republicans have campaigned on because if it's about cutting spending, there is no advantage to the president sticking out his neck on this one. chris: reagan tried to cut it all the time and never was. norah, the question that comes to us is this, two-thirds of the american people say don't raise the retirement age. it's right now 66. it's going up to 67 by the year 2025. you and i were talking earlier, it may go up at the end of the adventure to 69 and that scares people but enough to say don't do it. >> well, there is reportedly a split in the white house between the political team that says don't touch it and the economic team that says you have to touch it. chris: gene sperling and geithner say cut it. >> the political people say don't do this, certainly during election. president in his state-of-the-union address said we have to tackle entitle wanted, he proposed and put forward. he came out with the proposal

too contradictory characterizations of what america's interest is in libya. what did you hear from that exchange between secretaries gates and clinton? >> well, gates is clearly a realist. he's always been. this is not new. that's how he's been able to serve two presidents well, both bush and obama. but the notion of what is vital interest is something that one can debate. if you had asked me -- and i come out of a realist background myself. if you had asked me six months ago, do we have an interest to intervene in libya, i would have said, probably not, i would have to scratch my head to see whether we did or not. but things have changed dramatically over the past few weeks. libya is not just about libya. we see all these revolutions are connected. we see that public empowerment in the region is connected. we see that the message that is sent in libya is heard in damascus and in yemen. there is a very important american interest in the revolutions and particularly in seeing the peaceful revolutions that are seeking primarily freedom and dignity succeed because that is the best ant
